What we do...

Private Fishing Charters


A private fishing charter is a private group that books the entire boat for a set amount of time. These trips are not priced at a per person rate. The price of a private fishing charter starts at a flat rate for up to 6 passengers. You DO NOT need to have 6 people to book a private charter. If you want to book the boat by yourself or with 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 people, you can, but the price is still assessed at the 6 passenger rate. If you have more than 6 people in your fishing party, don't worry, our boat is licensed for up to 22 passengers!  However, an additional charge of $85 per person over 6 will be assessed.  So if you have 7 people in your group for a six hour summertime charter the cost would be $675+85 for a total of $760.  

We will make suggestions on what species of fish to go after based on the time of year and fishing report, but ultimately it is your decision.  A $200 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT and a Credit Card number is required on ALL fishing trips upon them being booked.  Deposits are only refunded in the event that LJK Outdoors cancels the charter (i.e. inclement weather, vessel mechanical malfunction, etc.).

Walk On Fishing Charters


Do you want to go fishing but can't get enough people together or afford to book a Private Fishing Charter?  No problem, we got you covered!  Check out our dates below to get your ticket on one of our Walk-On Fishing Charters!  What is a Walk-On Fishing Charter?  It is a Half-Day or All-Day fishing trip that is paid per person (similar to a Headboat). You pick the date you want from our avaliable dates, call/text us at (410) 629-9206, and reserve your spot on the boat (credit card required).
